Sandy is an experienced litigator whose practice is dedicated to standing up for the rights of clients who have been seriously injured through no fault of their own. She practices out of Allen & Allen's Fredericksburg office in the areas of personal injury litigation, including automobile and trucking accident litigation, product liability, and premises liability in both state and federal courts. Prior to joining Allen & Allen, Sandy practiced law with a Richmond insurance defense firm where she gained valuable knowledge of how insurance companies and their attorneys evaluate claims and handle cases. She uses this understanding combined with her litigation experience to successfully advocate on behalf of her clients.
Sandy graduated magna cum laude from Mary Washington College in Fredericksburg, Virginia and then obtained a graduate degree in social work from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond. Her early employment included working with the homeless population in Fredericksburg and with neglected and abused children in Stafford County, Virginia. After graduate school, she was employed as a juvenile probation officer at Richmond Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court and as a middle school counselor in Richmond Public Schools. In 2001 Sandy received her law degree from the University of Virginia School of Law, first working as a commercial litigator at McGuireWoods, LLP and then practicing personal injury defense at Morris & Morris, P.C. in Richmond.
